Diabetes

While there is currently no cure for diabetes, the disease can be effectively managed with medications and a change in diet and exercise. An important part of treatment is maintaining a healthy weight. Although there is no typical or strict "diabetes diet," it is recommended to eat foods that are high in nutrition and low in calories - like fruits, whole grains and vegetables - instead of fatty, sugary foods. Physical activity is also a must to manage weight, lower blood sugar levels and increase the body's sensitivity to insulin. People with diabetes should aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity most days of the week. Medications and monitoring of blood sugar levels will be a part of life for people with diabetes. Depending on the condition, blood sugar should be monitored several times a day or several times a week. In addition, many people need insulin therapy throughout the day or may need to take other oral or injected medications to manage the condition.

 

Home Care Services Diabetics

 

At Interim HealthCare we understand that living with diabetes may be challenging. From establishing a healthy lifestyle to managing blood sugar and insulin levels, the disease may require extra care outside regular visits to the doctor or after a stay in the hospital. Interim HealthCare has experience in helping individuals and their families live with diabetes. Our home healthcare professionals can visit people with diabetes in their homes or at assisted living communities to provide care or supplement a healthcare regimen.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your help with my Mom. She has grown very close to a couple of your care givers. Everyone is prompt and considerate of her needs. It’s comforting to know I have people who I can count on.
